“Cycles of coordination and communication in the human brain”

Invasive and noninvasive studies in humans under physiological and pathological conditions converged on the suggestion that brain oscillations are related to cognitive processes such as sensory representations, attentional selection, and dynamical routing/gating of information. I will present recent studies that aim to further our understanding of the computational role of brain oscillations in three different areas: First, to what extent are brain oscillations regional specific and can account for computational specialisation of individual brain areas. Second, are there preferred rhythms that link perception and action and how are they expressed in behaviour. Third, what is the evidence that oscillations play a causal role in perception and action.
